Tempest Carbon2

Hong Kong based watch brand Tempest launches a second edition of its highly successful high quality automatic forged carbon watch made.

The Kickstarter campaign of the first Forged Carbon model was a huge hit. The second the Carbon2 is also made with Forged Carbon, a high tech material developed for use in aerospace, exotic race cars and high end sporting equipment.

With the new Kickstarter campaign, Tempest welcomes the wristwatch connoisseurs to own the highly exclusive forged carbon watch just below $800 instead of paying thousands of dollars to high end brands who also use the same materials and specifications.
Aesthetically, the use of forged carbon makes each wristwatch a unique piece. The forged carbon process creates a unique and unpredictable marbling pattern where no two watches are the same. Forged carbon is light weight and is also well known for its reliability and ruggedness.

A powerful and accurate Miyota Cal.9015 movement beats inside the case and each timepiece is tested to 200m water resistance. The Tempest Carbon's case back design is held down by 6 screws and the artwork is inspired by the Periodic Table of Elements and pays tribute to the element "Carbon". 
Viewing from the front, the super dome crystal made from highly scratch resistant sapphire crystal, offers the Carbon2 extra depth and dimension. The dial features individually hand-applied markers filled with BWG9 Swiss Lumi-Nova to maximize visibility in low light. Additionally the Tempest logo and Second hand are also coated in orange luminous compound.

The Carbon2 comes with a high quality, water-resistant Nylon strap with leather lining and black PVD coated stainless steel buckle.
